From foot of Ben More path (9:45) walked to summit (12:30). Along fine ridge to A'Chioch (13:25) and on to Beinn Fhada (14:55). Continued round ridge to Beinn a'Ghraig (16:40) - fine stony top. Then off end of ridge and down to road, tricky in woods at bottom. Back along road to car (18:30). Some cloud earlier, but fine day with long views.dbb02/05/2019

Fantastic walk along three ridges for Rob Wights third last munro. Sunny dry and perfect viz. circular walk from Knock. 8 hours.alexmaclennan19/05/2017
Directly up ridge from bridge over Scarisdale river after bus to Salen and walk in, no lifts! Slightly complicated in cloud so decided to drop drop down to col before A Chioch. Very erratic compass (Ben More problem) added problems at start but worked out fine. Got lift out to Salen almost immediately after hitting road.dickscroop16/04/2017
Set off direct from the road to the north in rain because of the enthusiasm of Jenny. Rained all the way to the top which was clear of cloud and I was grateful for my new gortex. Chucked it down really heavy as we reached the to, so we ran off down to the col with Ben More.The sun was out by the time we reached the car.mindlessflogger16/12/2016
(Cont fr Ben More). With Alice. Left Ben M at 14:50 and descended steep rough path in cloud over A'Cioch down to col and up Beinn Fhada (now in sun). Good views. Back to near col & long path to road (18:20). Alice jogged to fetch car. Great daydbb08/06/2016

from Ghraig. continuing on ridge disturbed an eagle 60m away who took off into mist without flapping its wings. Tricky descent over an awkward crag and a large yellow scree area to bealach and on rising contour over grass to second col by passing B nan Gabhar. Uphill to grassy ridge and to top at 14.10. to NW top.arranc30/08/2006
During a New Week stay in Tobermory, combined with an ascent of Ben More with Shaky. The usual starting point for the Munro, along the glen (frosted nicely underfoot) to the col between the two hills & then steeply N to the summit of Beinn Fhada. Back to the col & then over Ben More descending the path NW to Loch na Keal. If I was doing this hill on its own, I would walk back along the ridge of Beinn Fhada towards the loch.NotReallyABagger02/01/2006

Easy walk from B8035, along by Scarisdale River, then up NW ridge. Our first day on Mull- we had driven from Strontian and got an early, half-full ferry. The weather was too good to miss for this long-awaited approach to Ben More- 1100 hrs start,pwheeler05/06/2002
